Saco studio description

We have a studio apartment on our small organic farm which is located in our restored barn that was built in 1793. The apartment has a private deck which overlooks beautiful perennial gardens and small ponds.
Guests are highly encouraged to pick organic vegetables in season. Fresh eggs from our pasture raised hens are always available.
The apartment features a queen sized bed and if needed, twin air mattresses for children. A full sized kitchen with a gas stove, refrigerator, and microwave will allow you to 'cook in' with ease. There is Wifi and satellite television as well as a DVD player for those evenings you might want to relax at home.

The back deck is a lovely place to sit for a meal or to enjoy the peaceful surroundings. Visitors always comment that we provide them with an environment that is comfortable and serene.
We are located 4 miles from the Maine Turnpike, a 10 minute drive from the Saco train station, or a 30 minute drive from the Portland airport.

For those who are interested in more physical activities, our rural 'back roads' are wonderful for biking. We are a short 7 minute drive to the Saco River for swimming and kayaking/canoeing. Wonderful mountain hiking trails are within a 30-60 minute drive. Some of Maine's most beautiful beaches are also 15 - 30 minutes away.

If you prefer the 'fun parks', we have water parks,' Funtown', and an adventure park within a 10 minute drive.
For the shoppers, Kittery and Freeport outlets are each 40 minutes away, Portland's Old Port district is 25 minutes,and the Maine Mall is 20 minutes.


Keywords: Close to beautiful beaches and the Saco River. Fresh organic vegetables available in season as well as fresh organic eggs. Very private deck and gardens. Lifelong Maine resident with excellent knowledge of tourist destinations. Only 10 minutes from Maine turnpike or the Saco train station and 25 minutes to Portland.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1988

                  About the owner: Our small farm is indicative of our 'self-sustainable' lifestyle. Nicol is a veritable 'jack-of-all trades' who did the restoration of our home and our barn. He is the organic vegetable gardener, the logger, the farm maintenance man and an excellent cook. Pamela is the native Mainer who keeps the perennial beds in some semblance of order as well as being the managerial staff of Rocky Hill Farm. We have traveled extensively over the years and some of our favorite places to stay have been small apartments or cottages in rural communities.

                  Why the Owner Chose Saco:
                  We built our studio apartment in our beautiful restored barn for our daughter and her husband. When they moved to New York City, we decided that it was time to invite travelers like ourselves to our little corner of the world. It has been a wonderful experiment and we are very happy to be host/hostess to the amazing people who choose to visit.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
                  Our farm allows you the opportunity to experience first hand a small working organic farm. Our location is an excellent 'jumping off' point for many of southern Maine's wonderful attractions.
